Filmmaking is a reflection of discovery within the private corridors of our imagination. I love the inquiry into the human condition. This journey we are on is magnificent, tragic and precious. Thank you for visiting my films/scripts and watching.
Jentzen is an multi-award winning director, writer and producer. She is a Southern California native who received her BA at UCLA and an MA in Spiritual Psychology at USM. She has directed and developed over a dozen plays in Los Angeles, including Yolanda King’s critically-acclaimed homage to her father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "Achieving the Dream". Her first short film, "Of Earth and Sky" which she shot on her Super VHS went on to garner a Finalist Award from The New York Festivals and Honorable Mention from the Film Council of Greater Columbus. Her screenplay, "The Georgia Boy" (aka: "Laurietta") won a Finalist Screenwriting Award from Outfest Los Angeles. Her short film, "Reign", shot on 35 mm, won her a Best Direction award from the Actors Film Festival Las Vegas, which she also wrote and produced. "Reign" also won Best Short and Audience Favorite from Louisville's International Festival of Film, as well as the New York International Film and Video Festival. Jentzen just finished post-production on "Anne Frank Meets God", which she wrote, directed and produced; a haunting short film set in one of the darkest moments in human history, starring Aubrey Peeples and Lorraine Toussaint. She also just completed writing her feature film "Beautiful". She is a proud member of the Alliance of Women Directors and SAG/AFTRA.
